BPCRS Match Results
January 9th, 2010


Nineteen shooters arrived at Avenal to shoot on a cold, foggy, overcast Saturday morning. There was very little wind but that cold, moist, heavy air was hard to read. The bullets move far more than expected in these conditions.

Congratulations to Jim Lindsay, our Iron Sight match winner, and Yancey Harmon, our Scope match winner. Very nice shooting for winter conditions in Avenal.

As always, we had a great time visiting, telling stories, and enjoying each others company. Avenal is much more than a place to shoot. Our monthly matches are like a family reunion – with family you really do want to see. Make plans to join us sometime and see what Avenal is all about.

Indoor Gallery Matches. Our monthly Friday night indoor gallery matches are back and entirely too much fun.

An informal gallery match that will leave you wondering why you haven’t joined us before. Although we prefer vintage singleshot rifles with vintage scopes, any 22 caliber rimfire rifle (NO MAGNUMS) with any type of sight is acceptable.

Bring along your trusty 22 and find out what this is all about.

Friday Afternoon Pistol Match. Something new we’re adding to the weekend. The Avenal Gun Club has a very nice pistol range and we plan to make use of it. The program will change from month to month but will always be geared towards having fun. Bring your favorite sidearm (rim or centerfire) and plenty of ammo (NO MAGNUM LOADS)

The California Black Powder Cartridge Rifle Silhouette Championship Match will be held April 9th through April 11th, 2010 at the Avenal Gun Club.

Pre-registration will be required with a limit of 60 shooters each for Scope and Iron Sight matches. Registration forms and fees can be submitted in person at any of the monthly Avenal BPCR matches or mailed. Registration forms with fees need to be received no later than March 27, 2009. We are expecting a big turn-out for this event so please send in your forms and fees in early.

The Scope match will take place on April 9th 2010 and will be a 60 shot match.

The Iron Sight match will consist of two 40 shot programs, one each on Saturday April 10th, 2010 and Sunday April 11th, 2010. Aggregate scoring will determine awards for the Iron Sight match.
